single day. i am so happy and fortunate that he is a great young man, and god uses a son that doesn't speak to teach me so many things all day every day. i rarely talk about that because if it hits to the core of may. and that is why i have learned the necessary needs of technology whto learn and to grw at to do things. and why you and i need the things you're going to hear in just a couple of minutes. i just want to take a quick moment as you get settled. you will have to stop talking because i will not talk over you. you, too. i'm going to count to ten. i usually don't have to finish to ten. when you think of technology in the world today, we can't even imagine what is going to have the month from now. think of the things that have been eaten up. we used to have payphones. they are gone. the cellphone 8 it up. the cellphone 8 of the camera industry. you don't need to buy a camera. the cellphone 8 the watch industry. i don't even wear a watch. you can go through the list. he you don't have to go to the bank anymore. take a picture of a check and make a deposit. look at all the thin

say chinese authorities aren't transparent about their spending. the u.s. and japan and other countries are concerned about china's military muscle. the chinese government has been more aggressive in its campaign to force the claim over disputed islands in the region. analysts say it is partly intended to keep other countries in check over the disputes. >>> analysts are sounding the alarm about the naval buildup. their annual white paper says recent actions by chinese authorities are a grave concern for east asia and the rest of the world. this year's report says china's defense budget increased by 30 times over the past 24 years. defense officials believe the growth is from building aircraft carriers and say chinese leaders are dispatching war ships more frequently to the south china sea and east china sea. the latter is home to the senkaku islands. which both china and taiwan claim. the wipe paper claims ownership. defense officials will submit the report to the cabinet and then release it to the public by the end of this month. public anger over the deployment of military a
standpoints. we believe that demonstration projects will allow us to optimize these. after all the modeling and analysis, we have programs for you to consider today. the recommendation is for 400 acres of green infrastructure and eight early implementation projects to cut our teeth. this will allow us to keep performance with local experience. as early implementation is completed, we recommend larger scale implementation. specific projects would be just fine through the urban watershed assessment process, but if you want an idea of the level of implementation we are talking about, we think 22 miles of mean streets redirecting hundreds of acres and giving us the ability to daylight one. these are placeholder concepts that allowed us to model and assess the performance of these projects. as we go through, we will be coming back to confirm these assessment assumptions and going through actual specifics with the commission. the potential that these recommendations have to impact this system are significant. there is a combined discharge volume of 900 million gallons annually, meaning that over

[laughter] this trailer has a really nice mri in it. we work with inmates to volunteer force studies and how to make them better. what we have found is that individuals to have those psychopathic traits, only about a third of all inmates will score really high on the straights. they have reduced gray matter density in these areas. this is the same area where that guy had the tumor. these individuals, control and for all the important things, they are all from pretty average environments. extremely different in terms of structure. does this go towards mitigation? how should it be used? how should this information be used to? i use it to dole out treatment. that is how i thought we would kick start this seminar. i am happy to answer any

joins us. "starting point" begins right now. welcome, our starting point this morning, new details coming to us about what was inside the apartment of the aurora colorado shooting suspect's home, after his bizarre appearance in court yesterday. cnn has new information, a law enforcement official who viewed videotape taken inside the apartment says this, mess of wires looked like spaghetti and it was rigged quote, right. if police hadn't dismantled the explosives the entire floor could have been consumed by flames before the first fire truck arrive. the aurora police found 30 improvised explosive devices surrounded by gas containers of gasoline. the gasoline was meant to enhance the effects of the blast. all of that brings us right to jim spellman. he's standing outside the theater. we can see the neon sign behind you. let's talk first about this video. i know it's black and white. what more can you tell us? >> yeah, police describe this whole apartment as being designed to kill. all rigged up to a trip wire at the front door. it took them almost two days before they could figure ou
about how we try to use this science with technology to help you sustain your brain health. i will give you advice about other things you can undo, whether your problem is a disability or you have that comment disability that applies to every one of us, you're simply having another birthday, like i am today. ok? on the path to a better, healthier, say few -- safer, and hopefully happier life. first, what you know that we used to think not very long ago, the predominant scientific view was that the brain grew up in the early life. it was a time of maturation. then it became fixed buying connectivity and wiring. then it was like a computer that was hard wired. and the only way it had to go from a very early point to a life was downhill. because it matured very early, basically there was a mysterious operating system and mysterious algorithms that accounted for your progression of learning, but as a physical and functional machine, it was stabbed in the only thing it did from a very early time in young child was to go south. we now know that is completely false. we now know that the brain
in california these days is in a partnership situation, and we have many of our partnership stakeholders with us today. jim from the california transportation commission is here and the california alliance for jobs. he is the guy tried to put these guys to work. randy from the mtc and his boss steve. they are the ones that put the deal together for us for caltrain electrification. the new head of bart has done a spectacular job. [applause] and from our friends in the central valley who cannot wait for the opportunity to get on a train and leave fresno when it is 112 and come to visit san francisco to visit the chocolate factory, we have henry perea and others from the economic development commission. it is about tying our great state together, and that is what we would do with high-speed rail. for me, watching this process has been an education in leadership. it does not take anything to be a leader when the decisions are easy. believe me. it takes courage and grit when the decisions are hard. our governor, when he came into office, was faced with everyone telling him, this is your opportunity t
grath is live on the scene now. megan, what can you tell us about what's going on? >> well, barbara, decatur street is shut down here in the area of the rail tracks here. take a look behind me. you can see the crews still here on the scene. let's look at the chopper video. some pretty dramatic vilss to show you here of this suv that got in the way of this train. the train was heading northbound on the tracks. it's a csx train, a freight train and for whatever reason this suv got on to the tracks. the train, fortunately, was going rather slowly, tried to stop. it did impact, it did strike the suv and we're told that it dragged the vehicle about 30 feet up the tracks until it came to a complete stop. now, there was a woman behind the wheel, she's in her 30s. that's all we know about her identity. we're told that she has serious injuries, but that she is expected to live. now, exactly what was going on at the time this all happened. you can see that the lights here are flashing at this crossing here. exactly how this, the two came into this path of collision, that's still part of the investigat
a special interest and relationship to south of the border. many of us have familial relationships. some recent, some past culture language. and i don't believe that this country has ever really focused on these attributes that could be a benefit to the united states coming and why today i think the timing couldn't be better. the growth of the latino community in the united states is the largest minority group in the united states. its voting power has been increasing tremendously and i do think that looking at south of the border there are opportunities, positive opportunities that benefit this country by a closer alliance and closer relationship. as an example, i don't think americans truly understand the significant changes that have occurred both domestically and internationally south of the border that would benefit paying more attention. as an example, the evolution and the strengthening of democracy in certain important large countries in south america and central america mexico, colombia, brazil. you know, we have cemented the space ideals of a space form of government, and coupl
with the regulators, that we are doing a project that will get us to meet that. the balance is the reality that says in this process, if there are ways to lower the investment in the gray, bring in some green and has other multiple benefits up in the system, and we can get to that same end target cost effectively, we can do it and spend the same amount of money, or close. >> and my question is whether it could be less. we that forward to the next workshop and whether we will have to balance these increases against the rate increases and we explore these -- the way in which these decisions could be integrated in order to manage the cost. also, just an observation, any guesses as to what the ceiling height is of this room. -- of this room? somewhere in the 18 to 20 ft., maybe? >> more than that. i would say 30. >> he would say 30? >> yes. >> four point of reference, these are huge tunnels. what is the height -- the diameter of those things? >> 30 by 40? >> close. >> the one out at ocean beach is about 60 ft. wide and about 40 ft. deep. >> sometimes we forget how large the stuff is that we talk about a
in u.s. history. >> 12 dead at close to 60 others were injured. >> good morning . the theater where the mass murder took place remains close. it could be months before the trial begins. yesterday the public had a chance to look of the alleged killer face to face. the makeshift memorial keeps growing across from the theater today after a brief hearing to read james holmes his rights. the accused mass murderer seemed dazed as family members of some of the victims sat nearby. >> he does look fairly demotic something like that. his eyes are kind of crazy looking. there's something wrong with that man. >> holmes recently dropped out of grant school. he spent thousands of dollars on weapons and ammunition and dressed up like a batman character and open fire on this theater. 10 were dead in the theater and two died later. among them were jessica. >> we were awakened by the most horrific scream i have ever heard in my life. >> the victims range in age from 6 to 51. there are many stories of heroism. her friend saved her life. they made it out alive. >> we were waiting there literally in the

to allow patients with congestive heart failure monitor their health using a mobile application taking blood oxygen level, heart rate and weight to and transmit to doctors why is it -- wirelessly. if the owners sees a decline in the patient's health and will contact them immediately. >> host: is there savings of health care dollars? >> definitely. 1 million people are admitted annually with congestive heart failure and with than 30 days there readmitted. this allows better monitoring and to intervene when the health declines. >> host: is the technology in use now? >> guest: launched medical center in arizona for patients and remote areas and native american reservations to coordinate health care. >> host: there is one other technology here mr. gordon? what will you show us? >> i can take a picture so if you push the shutter button with the perfect smile. >> thank you very much. with the consumer electronics. >> you may have seen the new commercial and joining us is the vice president of dish network. >> this is the hopper relaunched it march 15 a d.r. to record more than other asian an
